Trade one rack for two? I'm trying to _increase_ my space so I can find a
single bloody 6800.

I have a mostly disassembled E10k chassis that I just need to finish the
last few things on it (magnetic clips, et al, I have all of the boards and
power distribution out of it already) and then I can take it up to a metal
recycler... That'll give me a bit more room!

I'm pondering getting rid of the IBM Series/1 carcass too. It's racked,
has the front panel and cardcage, a 8" FDD and the drive tray for the big
IBM hard disk of the era (I forget the model). Unfortunately someone
dismantled the internal disk and stole the power supply from behind the
front panel, so it's... useless.

I have six of these bleedin' Onyx2 racks, but only two of the graphics
modules work as-is. I imagine someone appropriately motivated could swap
cards to get another one or two fired up.

Anyone want to help out? Free for pickup :)
